Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 8 April 2016

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "use kraft card".
I love to use kraft card as it makes the cards/creations very rustic in nature.  For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Toadstool Fairy".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and used chalks for the background for a subtle effect.

For my back paper I have used various Tim Holtz distress inks (Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Squeezed Lemonade and Tea Dye) and dabbed onto a craft sheet, spritzed with water and swirled by watercolour card into it.  I then used various texture stamps and the same ink pads to add texture.  Finally I inked through with a harlequin mask and Rusty Hinge distress ink mixed with a little bit of my pearl Imagination Crafts Starlight Paint to give some shimmer to the project.

I have finished the card off with die-cut butterflies, stamped sentiment, ribbon and some Dutch Doobadoo kraft embellishments.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
